Art for everyone!

FIELD NOTES: We’ve heard plenty of complaints about graffiti: that it’s not a valid art form, or that galleries shouldn’t reward deviant behaviour by elevating it to the status of high art. We ask anyone sympathetic to those views to take some time and examine this detail of a much larger piece. This small portion is beautiful. Even if it’s not your cup of tea, you’ve got to admit the artist possesses an incredible amount of talent—and they’ve given the city a work of art that’s accessible to everyone.

Once a week, Vandalist features some of the most interesting street art and graffiti from around Toronto. Find something great? Email [email protected].
